Thread: Install games in 11.2

    Post Install games in 11.2

    Hi,
    I wanted to install a few games in my brand new 11.2 however when I searched Webpin for supertux and supertuxkart, I got this:
    Code:
    falsehttp://download.opensuse.org/repositories/games/openSUSE_11.1Unknown repositoryRepository indexed by webpin, no further information available, use at your own risk.http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/games/openSUSE_11.1supertuxkartAn enhanced version of TuxKart, a kart racing gameSuperTuxKart is an enhanced version of TuxKart, a kart racing game, originally done by Steve Baker, featuring Tux and a bunch of his friends.
    I realise that 11.2 is not up yet there, is that the reason? Anyway I can install these games in 11.2? Also can anyone tell me how to install yo-frankie? Are there any other unofficial game repos?

    TIA

    I am sure you can install them, 11.2 should be able to install the older .rpms.
    sometimes older packages work better anyway, as long as they dont have too many outdated dependencies.
    Its worth a shot using the 11.1 repositories for it

    Thanks guys. Also one more un-related question:

    Can anyone provide me with an easy guide to build openSUSE installable rpms? Like PKGBUILD [arch] or ebuilds [gentoo] or slackbuilds[slackware], does ay such thing exist here? I want to make my own packages from source.

    Thanks
